Quotes: Establishing Character Moment
"In one scene, Winkler was supposed to comb his hair in the bathroom mirror, like all the kids did back then. Instead, he sauntered up to the mirror, started to comb, and immediately stopped. He stared into the mirror, arms outstretched, and realized his hair was already perfect, and he was already the coolest guy in the world. 'AYYY!'"
Cracked

"Katy Manning objects to being called 'dizzy' in the commentary to The Mind of Evil, but I think the tag stands if you watch her era from beginning to end. She's smart, resourceful, selfless...but she's also very dizzy at times. Jo Grant is an instant favourite and as she trips onto the scene with her hippy hair and crazy clothes and walks straight into ruining one of the Doctor’s experiment (thinking she is saving his life) and it is easy to see why a generation of teenagers might have fallen in love. There are few other assistants that prove to be as feisty and enterprising and yet also fairly useless and somebody you would want to take under your wing and protect at the same time. It’s all down to Katy Manning’s very sweet performance and her chemistry with Jon Pertwee...Jo is very excited to inform the Doctor that she took an A Level in General Science but waits a while (when she has cocked something up) to admit that she failed."

"As weird as it is that there’s a whole store that sells playing cards, what really bothers me is that you’d think he’d be buying those things in bulk at this point...Then again, mail-order wouldn’t give him the opportunity to flirt with the foxy playing card store cashier, whose breathy 'You must like to play cards' is met with 'I like solitaire okay, unless I got someone… to play with.'

For those of you who may have missed that, this is how the
X-Men cartoon chooses to introduce Gambit: With him announcing through the thinnest possible metaphor that he likes to masturbate unless there’s someone around willing to have sex. Gambit, everybody!"
Chris Sims on X-Men

Kamina: {draws a sword against a Gunman) HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY! Listen you-
{Gunman attacks, but Simon pulls Kamina out of the way in time)
Simon: What the hell are you doing?!
Kamina: Establishing that I'm the Badass leader, duh.

"A toast establishing me as the wealthy, successful protagonist, who is handsome."
Wealthy, Successful Protagonist (Who Is Handsome), A Trailer For Every Academy Award Winning Movie Ever

"Jedi. You are surrounded. Your army is decimated. Make peace with the Force now, for this is your final hour. But know that I, General Grievous, am not completely without mercy: I will grant you a warrior's death. Prepare."
General Grievous, Star Wars: Clone Wars

"I'm the Avatar! You gotta deal with it!"
(Korra proceeds to bend three elements)
Korra, The Legend of Korra, "Welcome to Republic City"

"HEY! NO RESETTIN'! YOU HEAR ME?! Huh? You sayin' you never reset nothin'? Oh, well, uh.... Guess we ain't got a problem then. So, lemme introduce myself. Name's Resetti. Mr. Resetti. On behalf of the family, I'd like to show youse.... I mean show YOU, uh.... Uh, show you.... Aw, forget it! How's a mole supposed to remember this garbage? HUH? Let's cut to the chase.

KEEP CRYIN', PUNK! I got a little news for ya! It don't matter if you're resettin' anything, OK? I'm gonna be poppin' up now an' again, so you'd better be ready for your daily dose of mole!
